Stargazers could be in for a rare display Sept. 12 as an Earth-directed solar flare ignites the northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis, in the United States. As a result of the flare’s direction and strength, the dazzling light display could reach as far south as Maryland in the east and down to Kansas farther west.
This week has been a week of me finally getting to see cool shit in the sky again! Hooray for being in the ‘good’ zone, and especially for being somewhere with almost no light pollution! Thanks for the heads up, helpimtrappedontheinternet!
